From earlier today, on Dom Smith's evolution into one of the league's best hitters and what it means moving forward: https://t.co/fFLnvwN16Z
Since the Mets are not playing tonight, they can only be eliminated if two of those three things happen below. (Mets are already guaranteed to finish behind CIN and one of STL/MIL, since those latter two are playing this weekend.)
One more loss will eliminate the Mets from postseason contention. Even with a win tonight, they can be eliminated if two of the following three happen: 1. Phillies beat Rays 2. Marlins beat Yankees 3. Giants sweep doubleheader from Padres
An update on the Mets’ elimination scenarios:
A tweak on this: Three of these four things would need to happen to eliminate the #Mets: 1) #Phillies win 2) #Marlins win 3) #Cardinals win 1 4) #Giants win 2
It’s going to be fun later on trying to figure out if the Mets are eliminated or still alive heading to Saturday. Our pal @KenDavidoff got this info from MLB: If the Phillies and Marlins both win AND the Cardinals win 1 of their 2 games then the Mets would be eliminated.
Gary Sheffield & Alex Rodriguez later joined this exclusive list. Sheffield hit his homer at the age of 40 with the #Mets back in 2009.
